With the Indian Ocean pumping, surfers Mikala Jones, Marlon Gerber, Tai Graham, and Awan Hadi were hungry for solitude in their waves. This project from Eyeforce was put together following a last-minute call from Graham, and the group hoped on a plane from Amsterdam. In an attempt to avoid the crowds, they took off on their boat Bulan Baru for far-flung Indonesian islands in hopes of finding a lineup filled only with friends and clean lines.
